Poured into a standard pint glass. Light copper-golden color with a finger of head that dissipates quickly. Minimal lacing. Mild aromas of spices with hints of sweet pumpkin. Flavor is mostly spices, nutmeg maybe cinammon. Mild pumpkin flavor. Carbonation is moderate to light, with a light mouthfeel. Very drinkable. Overall, a decent pumpkin beer.

Finally a pumpkin beer that highlights pumpkin flavor rather than overpowering nutmeg. This is underrated. While the base beer is only okay, I really enjoyed having a sixer over 18 holes on a nice fall late afternoon.

In bottle thanks Craig. Pours a light golden colour with a fair white head. Aroma of pumpkin, vanilla, nutmeg and caramel. Similar flavours with mild carbonation and a foamy mouth-feel. Lingering pumpkin and vanilla again. An interesting take on the style.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle at Craigís. Pale yellow orange, thin bubbles. Light pumpkin, lots of vanilla, lemony spice nose. Soft, mellow malts, soft creamy caramel, touch of earthy pumpkin, light bitterness. Not quite spiced enough for me, but lovely and drinkable.

355mL at a party. Clear golden pour. Medium white fluffy head. Spotty lace. Pumpkin lie air freshener nose. Pretty intense. Smells like a Michaels arts and crafts store. Potpourri. A bit artificial. Taste is buttery, bland, soapy, some mealy apple and diacetyl. Eh.

Bottle. Clear yellow with a light foamy head. Very strong spice aroma ... Overdone a little. Lots of carbonation. Not my favorite pumpkin.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 16/20
The aroma brings mostly pumpkin spice and some caramel. Pale gold in color with a very thin foam. Strong pumpkin pie/pumpkin spice overtones. Other than that there is not a whole lot of flavor going on. Possibly some oats and caramel undertones. Overall, not a bad pumpkin ale. Strong pumpkin flavoring, I just wish there was a little more to it than that. Iíd give this a C+ rating.
